Error code 2738 When Installing iTunes + Quicktime on Windows Vista

I just downloaded the latest iTumes version, but when I tried to install it, I got the following error: 

iTunes Logo

The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2738.

After research I found the following link:

The solution was to re-register vbscript.dll.  I also selected “Run as Administrator” option when I reran after reregistering the dll.

To register the dll, please do the following:

  1. On the Start menu, click Run.
  2. In the “Open” field, enter the following command and click OK.
    regsvr32 vbscript.dll
  3. A message should appear stating that the “DllRegisterServer in C:\WINDOWS\system32\vbscript.dll succeeded.”
  4. Click OK and try installing iTunes or QuickTime again.

Thanks for Apple Support for the posting…
